Wellington, May 15 (IBNS): Former New Zealand batsman Peter Fulton has been appointed as the batting coach of the national side.

He will take over as the batting coach following this year’s ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales. 

He will replace  Craig McMillan.

Craig McMillan will resign from the job after serving as the batting coach for almost five years.

Fulton played 84 internationals for New Zealand as a top-order batsman with the last of his 23 Tests coming in July 2014.

New Zealand coach Gary Stead said Fulton was the stand-out applicant for the role.

“Pete obviously has a good understanding of batting, but he also demonstrated a clear vision for helping our elite batsmen," he was quoted as saying by the New Zealand Cricket website.

“He’s shown he has the coaching skills through his work with the New Zealand Under 19s and our winter training squads, while we know from his playing days that he will certainly add to our team culture," he said.

Fulton's role as batting coach will resume from Aug 1.
